ἡ μὲν σοφὴ δέσποινα τῆς οἰκουμένης,
ὑπ᾽ εὐσεβοῦς ἔρωτος ἠρεθισμένη,
πάρεστι δούλη, προσκυνεῖ δ᾽ ἑνὸς τάφον,
ἡ πᾶσιν ἀνθρώποισι προσκυνουμένη.

ὁ γὰρ δεδωκὼς τὸν θρόνον καὶ τὸν γάμον
τέθνηκεν ὡς ἄνθρωπος, ἀλλὰ ζῇ θεός:
κάτω μὲν ἠνθρώπιζεν ἦν δ᾽ ὡς ἦν ἄνω.

On Eudocia the Wife of King Theodosius

The wise mistress of the world, inflamed by pious love, cometh as a servant, and she who is worshipped by all mankind worshippeth the tomb of One. For He who gave her a husband and a throne, died as a Man but lives a God. Below He played the man, but above He was as He was.
